Ferguson, Newport News, VA, has made a $10,000 contribution to support the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors (PHCC) Educational Foundation’s “Invest In Your Future” Annual Giving Campaign.
Ferguson’s gift complements a contribution-matching program in place from InSinkErator. This support from industry leaders has helped the Foundation to set a new annual fundraising record, with $125,000 in contributions collected in 2006. Fundraiser proceeds help the PHCC Educational Foundation fulfill its mission of providing quality education to contractors. A portion of the proceeds also support the PHCC National Auxiliary Scholarship Program.
“The image of our industry gets a boost every time a professional, well-trained contractor provides great service to a customer. Ferguson is doing their part to provide educational opportunities for contractors with their contribution,” says Foundation Chairman, James Driscoll. “This is the second year that Ferguson has stepped forward with a significant gift in support of this fundraiser, and we truly appreciate their continued support.”
Contribution forms for the 2007 fundraiser are available directly from the Foundation Web site at http://www.foundation.phccweb.org/invest or by calling (800) 533-7694.
